French far-right leader Le Pen at Trump Tower; 'no meetings'

Nigel Farage stands in the lobby of Trump Tower in Manhattan New York U.S

During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump's combination of extremist national security paranoia and borderline-leftist economic populism was often compared to that of Marine LePen, the leader of France's far-right National Front.

Sean Spicer, a Trump spokesman, said Le Pen was not meeting with the president-elect, adding that Trump Tower was "open to the public", a CNN reporter posted on Twitter.

She declined to say whether she was there to see President-elect Donald Trump but the Trump team said there would be "no meetings".

According to a recent poll she has a narrow lead in the race for the French presidency, with the election four months away.

Watch Michelle Obama Thank Her Own Mom-In-Chief
She has said Wonder is her favourite singer, and he was brought on to serenade her on Fallon's Tonight Show. Kids, of course, were one of the chief focuses of Michelle Obama's time in the White House.

Le Pen will launch her presidential campaign February 4 in the city of Lyon.

When contacted by L'Express newspaper, David Rachline, Le Pen's campaign chief, did not deny Le Pen's presence in Trump Tower, but suggested she was there for privately arranged meetings.

The party was founded by Le Pen's father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, who, according to PBS, "famously described the Holocaust as a detail of history". "We don't communicate about private visits".

On Thursday afternoon she was caught by an eagle-eyed snapper in the famous Trump Tower, the headquarters of the US-president elect's empire.

Washington sanctioned a close friend of Putin and Alexander Litvinenko's alleged assassins
This puts Trump at odds with congressional Republicans who call for an independent investigation. Trump is widely expected to ease that economic pressure campaign.

National Front is one of Europe's most established populist parties with an agenda focused on immigration reforms and France leaving the European Union.

But when asked if she would speak to pool journalists later, one of her associates said "OK".

Unconfirmed reports suggest the man to Ms Le Pen's right in the photo is Guido "George" Lombardi.

It wasn't immediately clear who Le Pen and her partner Louis Aliot were talking to and whether she was to meet Trump himself or just his advisers.

Volkswagen Reveals Its New Version Of Tiguan SUV
Behind its long rear doors is a second-row seat split into 40/20/40 sections that can slide up to 7.0 inches fore and aft. Volkswagen has introduced the brand-new, second-generation Tiguan ahead of its public debut during the Detroit Auto Show.

So far, Le Pen has not had a great start to the year. I'm not answerable to Donald Trump's internal USA policies. She has publicly supported the president-elect on multiple occasions, recently referring to him as a "sign of hope".
